Essential Oils, Carrier Oils, Diffusers
Aromatherapy is gaining momentum in recent years as an alternative holistic modality to help bring balance and well-being into our lives both mentally and physically. Aromatherapy uses aromatic components of plants found in resins and oils for their calming, energizing, antidepressant, cleansing, and antimicrobial properties. Depending on the plant, essential oils are extracted from flowers, leaves, bark, root, resin, or peels. Since these oils are highly concentrated and potent, only a drop or two provides powerful benefits.
Different essential oils provide a variety of benefits including:
- Fighting infections and boosting immunity
- Balancing hormones
- Increasing energy
- Boosting digestion
- Improving mental clarity
- Lowering anxiety and stress
- Providing pain relief
- Promoting sleep and relaxation and much more
Most commonly, essential oils are used by:
Diffusing in essential oil diffusers:
- Ultrasonic diffusers – instead of heat, ultrasonic diffusers use ultrasonic vibrations to diffuse the oils preserving the integrity and benefits of the oil. All you need is some tap water and a few drops of your favourite essential oil or essential oil blend.
- USB ultrasonic diffuser – plugs into your laptop
- Terracotta diffusers
- Room and car diffusers with replaceable inserts
- Humidifiers that have an option for essential oil diffusing
- Necklace diffusers
Diluting in carrier oils and applying topically – since essential oils are very potent, most are not recommended to be applied directly on the skin. That is why having high-quality carrier oils to dilute your essential oils for topical use is very important:
- Almond oil
- Apricot oil
- Avocado oil
- Evening primrose oil
- Grapeseed oil
- Jojoba oil
- Vegetable glycerin
- Liquid lanolin
- Sesame seed oil
- Combination carrier oils for massage
We also offer essential oils in spray bottles that are great to spray in the air for immediate odour neutralizing or for cleaning and refreshing your yoga mat and other surfaces.
At Better Living Wellness Clinic and Health Store we carry essential oils (single and combination), carrier oils and diffusers.
These are the brands that we carry:
Pranarom is a company founded in 1991 in Europe that specializes in scientific and medicinal aromatherapy. Pranarom offers 100% pure and natural chemotyped essential oils obtained through steam distillation.
Chemotyping is very important because the same plant can be biochemically different depending on the biotope (climatic conditions, sun exposure, soil composition, altitude, surrounding plants…). These variations in the biochemical composition of essential oils are referred to as “Chemotypes”. Two chemotypes of the same essential oil have different activities as well as different toxicity levels which is important to be aware of especially if using these oils for medicinal purposes.
Pranarom essential oils, as well as carrier oils, are also certified organic.
In addition to essential oils and carrier oils, Pranarom also offers a variety of essential oil diffusers, all available at Better Living Wellness Clinic and Health Store in Toronto, Etobicoke.
